You can hear a promo track by AER/Simon Scott/Mika Vainio here:

in a 24/7 worldthere is no greater challenge than "to be in command of one's own time". Is it true that the ability to download anything, at any moment, constitutes freedom? Has the 'Value' of music, art and design been stripped bare? "I Google, therefore I am"...

touchMOVEMENTS has been compiled over the course of 3 years. It is a response to many requests for Touch to publish a fuller account of Jon Wozencroft's photography for the cover art of the project. The book follows the music, which was compiled step-by- step, like a jigsaw – there was not an "open call" to the artists, rather a sequential development which gives the CD a special narrative quality. And since our lastTouch 30compilation in 2012, the accuracy of the music has grown and rises to the challenge of what sound can do to transform perceptions about the immediate emotion of musical work and its more dif cult, longer term evolution.

Following Touch Folio 001 in 2015, this series is a dedication to nding new ways
of audiovisual publishing, somewhere between the twin peaks of a jewel-cased CD and a lavish box-set. The two elements of sound and the visual work in parallel to create the idea of an "Ear-book", whose interdependency reveals itself over time, and allows the richest of listening and viewing experiences. The music and the photography is fully annotated, alongside a rarely-seen manifesto by the Surrealist lm-maker Jan Švankmajer which celebrates the spirit of the creative act.
